This episode of Gospel Music Roundup is a Highlight On Hymns, those old classics sung for generations in congregations all throughout the United States and the world. No other worship music has endured the test of time, but the old classic Hymns and Convention songs. Not to knock modern worship music, but all too often we hear these modern songs for a short season, and then they are “rotated out,” to be replaced by still newer, fresher songs. While many will try to proclaim the death of the old-fashioned hymns, they seem to push forward beyond the hype and remain a constant favorite of young and old alike- I don’t know how many times I have sung a classic hymn in a church service, only to be approached by someone younger than myself, exclaiming how cool the song was, or even wondering if I had written it!
I could only hope to someday pen something that is sung through multiple generations or even centuries; But that hope is nothing compared to the Hope that is already in me in Christ Jesus!
Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, 16making the most
of your time, because the days are evil. 17So then do not be foolish, but understand
what the will of the Lord is. 18And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but
be filled with the Spirit, 19speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual
songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; 20always giving thanks
for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father; 21and be
subject to one another in the fear of Christ.
